Ethan Pocic (born August 5, 1995) is an American football Guard for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Louisiana State University.

He was a second-team All-Southeastern Conference selection by SEC coaches as a junior in 2015.[1] As a senior in 2016, Pocic was a finalist for the Rimington Trophy.[2][3] That year, he was a first-team All-SEC selection by the Associated Press.[4]

Professional career

Pocic received an invitation to the Senior Bowl and helped the South defeat the North 16-15. During the Senior Bowl, he met with the San Diego Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns, and Baltimore Ravens.[5] He also attended the NFL Combine and completed all the combine and positional drills. Although he attended LSU's Pro Day, he chose to only run positional drills for scouts and representatives. NFL draft experts and analysts projected Pocic to be a second or third round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. He was ranked the second best center in the draft by NFLDraftScout.com, Sports Illustrated, and ESPN, was ranked the fourth best interior offensive lineman in the draft by NFL analyst Bucky Brooks, and was ranked the fifth best interior offensive lineman by NFL analyst Mike Mayock.[6][7][8][9][10]
